In negro households, especially In communities where negroes form a large portion of the population, it fre quently happens rbat the woman Is the head of the family, being not only the breadwinner, but also the discipli narian, and in that capacity on occa sions she regards her putative lord and master as subject to her will. This at least was the assumption of the col ored woman who was a party to a lit tle scene enacted in the office of a jus tice of the peace. A man had been arrested on the charge of beating and cruelly misus ing his wife. After hearing the charge against the prisoner the justice turned the first witness. "Madam." he said, "if this man were your husband and had given you a beating would you call in the police?" The woman addressed, a veritable amazon in size and aggressiveness, turned a smiling countenance toward the justice and answered: "No, jedge.

English is not only, as Richard Jef ferles asserted, the most expressive and flexible of tongues, but also, in Swinburne's opinion, the most musi cal. He proclaimed the lines- Music that gentlier on the spirit lies Than tired eyelids upon tired eyes to be unmatched for melody in any language. And few would venture to contradict such a master of music and tongues. But surely French ranks next on the roll of languages. For clearness of diction it is unrivaled, and, thanks to its abundance of vow els (close on one for every consonant) It Howes rhythmically from the tongue. Against Westley's dictum, that French Is to German as a bagpipe to an or gan, may be cited a saying of another famous divine.

Facts About Giants. That very few of the giants who have ever lived have been healthy or well formed recent researches prove beyond a doubt All we know about Goliath is that be was very tall, but in the second book of Kings we read about another giant, who had more fingers than an ordinary human being, and. according to modern scientists, this is invariably a token of degen eracy. Marcel Donnal saw at Milan a giant who was so tall that his body filled two beds at night, but whose legs were so weak that he could hard ly stand upright. William Evans! the gigantic porter of Charles I., had little strength, and Cromwell's porter, an other giant, ended his days in a luna tic asylum. Finally. O'Brien, the Irish giant, has been described as "an enor mous sick child who grew up too fast" Another Fake.

Comrades who knew the ex tenuating circumstances. friends, priests, relatives—all pleaded in vain for mercy, the colonel in whose hands the matter rested insisting on the f.eatb penalty.

The Useful Crocodile Fish. In the rivers and lakes of the Mexi can state of Tabasco there swims a fish lyiown as the "crocodile Bsh" which is most useful to man. The skin of the crocodile fish, if properly cured, may be utilized for any of the purposes for which the lighter weights of leather are employed. The oil of the crocodile fish is a perfect lu bricant and also used for softening leather. In addition to its qualities as a lubricant and emolient. the oil pos sesses- medicinal 'qualities for which a superiority to the finest of Norwegian cod liver is claimed. The flesh of the crocodile fish is extensively used by the natives as food and highly relished by tbem as one of the delicacies of the country. Crocodile fish range in length from ten inches to four feet and when dried assume an ashen hue, with light er shadings of a bluish tint.—New Or leans Times-Democrat. Poor Human Nature. The woman who bad succeeded in that rather difficult task—making a boarding bouse pay—was confiding to a friend some of the tricks of the trade. "While you milst never allow your boarders to get too far behind in their payments, it is also true that you will profit considerably by allowing them a little leeway. So long as you are sure of your money it pays a landlady to have her boarders a week or two be hind in their board." "I don't see that," interrupted her friend. "Well, I'll tell you," continued the landlady. "When a man owes back board you have him at a certain dis advantage.

The lobster has always appealed to the Englishman as affording a nick name for bis fellow Englishman. "Lobster" was a favorite term of abuse among the Elizabethans, though it is only conjectural that an allusion to red faces was conveyed. As signifying a Boldler. "lobster" originated in the civil war. being applied to the Round head cuirassiers, as Clarendon ex plains, "because of the bright iron shells with which they were covered." Afterward the allusion was transfer red to the soldier's red uniform. But that was the "boiled lobster." The "raw lobster" was naturally the man in blue, the policeman. In earlier days we find Grose explaining that "to boll lobster" meant for a clergyman to become a soldier.—London Chron- The Man With the Iron Mask. The Man With the Iron Mask was a mysterious French prisoner of state, whose identity has never been satis factorily established. He was closely confined under the charge of M. de St. Mars at Pignerol in 1679. at Exiles in 1681. at Sainte-Marguerite in 1687 and finally was transferred to the Bastile in 1698, where he died on Nov. 19: 3703, and was buried the following day in the cemetery of St. Paul under the name of Marchiali.

McCumber of North Dakota, republi can nominee to succeed himself, and C. A. Johnson, of Minot, republican nominee for governor are both in Min neapolis. Senator McCumber came down by automobile from Detroit, Minn., where he is spending the sum mer recuperating from his recent ill ness. He declares that in his opinion there will be no break between Pres ident Taft and Theodore Roosevelt, as the president is trying hard to carry out the policies of his predecessor, and succeeding. Both the North Dakotans are feel ing confident of republican success in that state on the whole ticket. It is conceded that the only fight will be on governor, and both sides will con centrate their efforts there. The con gressmen, the rest of the state ticket and the legislature are safely republi can. Mr. Johnson was the Republi can candidate two years ago and was beaten by Governor John Burke, then running for a second term. The fac tional fight in the Republican primar ies lasted right up until election and aided much in electing Governor Burke. This year the situation is quite dif ferent. Governor Burke is running for a third term, which has a very dif ferent sound to the voters. The re publican primaries in June were hard fought, but ended with much better feeling than two years ago. The pro gressives lost on governor and one senator, but got the other senator, one congressman, and a majority of the other places. The senatorship was settled by the primary and that fight is not dragging through the campaign as it did two years ago, demoralizing the organization. The members of the state committee, who will meet early in September, have really but one ob-Drill ject, and that is to elect the governor. The progressive organization has pro mised its hearty support, and ft is being accepted in the same spirit. C. A. Johnson, nominee for governor is at the Nicollet for a few days. He says there is absolutely nothing being done in the political line this month, that the people are glad to have a good rest from politics after the pri maries, and the campaign will not open until after the state committee meets In September. Under the law this committee is to frame the plat form, in consultation with the candi dates. Father Knows. She—Did you say anything to papa about your being too youngV He—Yes.
